Given the growing concern about personal safety in the workplace and the community, the Office of Human Resource Services, working in concert with the University Police Department and the UF Counseling Center, will be holding two workshops this fall titled “Safe Campus, Safe Community: Creating a Violence-Free Workplace.”

Designed to increase awareness about proactive measures and appropriate responses in the event of a disruptive or violent situation, these workshops are designed for UF administrators to help ensure a safe campus environment at our university.

Please join me in addressing this important issue by planning to attend one of the following sessions:

11/18/2008, Emerson Alumni Hall, President’s Room, 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.
12/04/2008, J. Wayne Reitz Union, Grand Ballroom, 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.

Joining me as guest speakers will be Dr. Wayne Griffin from the UF Counseling Center; Captain Jeff Holcomb from the University of Florida Police Department; and Brook Mercier, Employee Relations manager for Human Resource Services.

This event is sponsored by UF Training and Org. Development.
